Welcome to
Thorpepark Academy

At Thorpepark we celebrate the diversity of all children and cultures.

Our academy is a welcoming, happy, caring place where we promote spiritual, moral, social, and cultural capital. We work hard to ensure that our children enjoy learning, achieve their potential and appreciate the differences that make us all unique’.

We believe that our children deserve a curriculum that is inspiring, creative and provides the opportunities to achieve their full potential. Our goal is to make them lifelong learners and to prepare them well for the next stage in their learning journey.

Our motto ‘Aiming High’ reflects the standards we expect for all learners. We undertake this by providing a learning framework that reflects the National Curriculum and is broad, balanced and meets the needs of all learners.

We encourage enterprise in our curriculum to prepare pupils for the world of work, and we are proud of the many effective partnerships that we share not only in the local community but also in the city of Hull and across the region.

Parents, carers, and everyone in the local community are invited to be part of our academy and to share in our mission to TELL THE WORLD.
